Patrick Battaglia, DC, DACBR integrated health center clinician and assistant professor at Logan, was recently appointed to the Clinical Working Group for the Academic Collaborative for Integrative Health (ACIH).
Formed in 2004, the ACIH supports a wide range of activities and projects in the areas of education, clinical care, research and policy that contribute to transforming our health care system to be one that emphasizes the importance of creating health and well-being.
The focus of the Clinical Working Group (CWG) is to identify and advance projects in clinical education that foster inter-disciplinary understanding and respect among professions and enhance the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and behaviors of individuals involved in integrated clinical settings, including clinicians, students and educators. The ultimate objective of CWG work is integrated and collaborative patient care.
“My hope is that we can continue to advocate for appropriate integration and utilization of chiropractic within a broader healthcare landscape,” Dr. Battaglia said.
ACIH represents 18 national organizations, as well as numerous universities, colleges and programs, and a wide variety of volunteers and supporters.
